Giants Catcher Buster Posey Struck in Head by Pitch in Home Opener

San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey was placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list Tuesday after he was struck in the head by a pitch in Monday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at AT&T Park.

Posey was hit in the head by a 94 miles per hour fastball from D-backs right-hander Taijuan Walker yesterday, and though Pavlovic notes that he's said to be feeling good, the team wants to proceed with caution in a potential concussion scenario.

The loudest and least forgettable sound of the afternoon was the thwack in the first inning when Taijuan Walker threw a pitch that Posey could not avoid.

Posey got up on his own after being hit but exited the game. He was a little tired, it was deep into his outing and I think it just happened to hit David. "I had to show those guys that I was going to be able to throw strikes and get them swinging a little bit". He has disappointed during his Giants tenure in 2017 recording just one hit in seven at bats to start off the early portion of the season. He's won three World Series titles with the San Francisco Giants, taken home Rookie of the Year and MVP awards, won a batting title, a Gold Glove, three Silver Slugger awards, and has been a four-time All-Star.

San Francisco squandered leads eight times in that rough first week, conjuring memories of last year's faulty bullpen, even though the starters were just as complicit with their 5.14 ERA. Jarrett Parker added a two-run triple for San Francisco. He headlines the offense alongside Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford and is one of the faces of the organization next to Madison Bumgarner.

Cory Gearin struck out three straight batters to end the inning. He was tagged for five runs on six hits and a walk with one strikeout across three innings in his first Triple-A start of the 2017 season.

In addition to driving in Arizona's first run, right fielder David Peralta made a key play in the fourth when he caught Panik's fly ball while skidding along the edge of the warning track. "It got away from me".

This would mark Posey's second trip to the DL in his career.

The Giants also observed a moment of silence for former major-league executive Katy Feeney, who died suddenly on Opening Day, and Giants employees who died over the offseason. "KATY" was spelled on the out-of-town scoreboard while photos and flowers were in the seat she often occupied during the postseason. Gardenhire was to be in Minnesota to undergo surgery for prostate cancer later this month. "We'll miss him", Lovullo said. Arizona sits atop the NL West on the strength of a 6-1 start that equals the best in franchise history.
